Call for Papers

9th International Symposium on Bioinformatics Research and Applications


May 20-22, 2013, Charlotte, NC


The International Symposium on Bioinformatics Research and Applications (ISBRA) provides a forum for the exchange of ideas and results among researchers, developers, and practitioners working on all aspects of bioinformatics and computational biology and their applications.  Submissions presenting original research are solicited in all areas of bioinformatics and computational biology, including the development of experimental or commercial systems. Topics of interest include but are not limited to:

Biomedical databases and data integration

High-performance bio-computing


Biomolecular imaging


High-throughput sequencing data analysis



Molecular evolution


Comparative genomics and phylogenomics


Molecular modeling and simulation

Computational genetic epidemiology


Pattern discovery and classification


Computational proteomics


Population genetics


Data mining and visualization


Software tools and applications

Gene _expression_ analysis

Structural biology


Genome analysis


Systems biology


We seek two categories of submissions: extended abstracts of up to 12 pages in Springer LNCS format, and short abstracts of up to 4 pages.  Both types of submissions must be made electronically by following the instructions at http://www.easychair.org/conferences/?conf=isbra2013Submission implies willingness of at least one author to register and present at the symposium. 

Accepted extended abstracts will be published prior to the symposium in Springer-Verlag's Lecture Notes in Bioinformatics (LNBI) series and presented orally at the symposium.  Full versions of selected extended abstracts presented at the symposium will be invited to a peer-reviewed special issue of IEEE/ACM Transactions on Computational Biology and Bioinformatics.  Accepted short abstracts will be distributed electronically and selected for either oral or poster presentation at the symposium.  The authors of selected short abstracts will be invited to submit full versions to a peer-reviewed supplement to be published after the symposium by BMC Bioinformatics.  Per current BMC policies, full versions of extended abstracts published in LNBI are not eligible for publication in the BMC supplement.
